Z3locales is a library which translates dates in Zope 2 to the current user language using Zope 3 technology.
Those functions are available in the module localdatetime:
- Return the current date formatted and translated in the current user language. The target user language is determined via the provided request.
- get_formatted_date(date, size="full", request=_marker, locale=_marker, display_time=True)
- Take a date (should be a tuple (year, month, day[, hour[, minute[, second]]]) or a Python datetime object), format it and translate it in the target user language (determined via locale or the given request). The modifier size and display_time can be used to change the output.
- get_month_names(request=_marker, locale=_marker, calendar='gregorian')
- Return a list of month names translated in the target language (determined via locale or the given request).
- get_month_abbreviations(request=_marker, locale=_marker, calendar='gregorian')
- Return a list of month abbreviations (usually the first three letters) translated in the target user language (determined via locale or the given request).
- Return the locale representing the target user language using the provided request. This locale can be used after by other functions of this package.
Compatibility API exists with previous versions.
- Fallback to english if the local that is asked is not available.
- Use local information from Zope API’s getPreferredLanguages when no specific local is given.
- Refactor API to factorize needed computation. The API changed to be compatible PEP8.
- First release as an egg.
- Use zope.i18n as a dependencies, not having a local copy of it.
